to take through feinstein's newly introduced bill and any other type of measures that the president would like to see put through the senate first. do you think, though, that harry reid being a pro-gun democrat, is the best person to helm this through the senate side? >> you were just talking about members of the house and senate in a vacuum, some of that may be true but i believe the president's strategy is the right one by going right to the american people and making the case that we need universal background checks eliminating the loopholes at gun shows that don't require background checks, going to the american people, talking about an assault weapons ban and also banning high capacity magazines, in an effort to continue to raise awareness, i'm sure the president will talk about this in the state of the union and to help build momentum, i'm organizing an effort with my colleagues, asking members of congress and the house anyway, to give their one state of the union guest ticket to a person who has been a victim of gun violence or family member. it is going to the american people, kee
the senate. feinstein effort, hard line gun control assault weapons ban that everyone says has a little chance of the senate let alone the house. there's a big democratic bill which you mentioned with a number of these provisions in it and then a third effort, a bipartisan effort, which we haven't yet really seen the outlines of to focus on the background check area which is really where there is emerging bipartisan consensus at this point. and we're going to see over the coming months exactly where it all -- how it all shifts out. >> michael, mayors against illegal guns put out a paper today talking about 43 mass shootings, at least 4 people killed in 1 time, 43 mass shootings since january 2009. that's more than one per month. and you see the amount of energy behind the attempt to create gun control is waning even after newtown and shocked america and you have to wonder, are we as a nation getting too numb to actually get to a place of gun control? >> well, what we know about mass shootings is there's actual remarkable and rather depressing consistency. for decades now averaged about
hasn't read the bill. mayor dianne feinstein has been a mayor. she's been in a shooting. she knows why she needs this. let's support the president and get some things done. >> however, momentum does seem to be building behindmost of the president's proposals. "wall street journal" saying the senate democrats include a bill limiting magazine clips and universal background checks despite continuing opposition of the nra. >> it's a fraud to call it universal. it is never going to be universal. the criminals aren't going to comply with it. they could care less. >>> and factor this one in. an ad by mayors against illegal guns ran during the super bowl. it pointed out that the nra once supported closing the so-called gun show loophole. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> let me bring in our political panel. radio talk show host and ms nns contributor michael smerkonish, mar gi o may ra and republican strategist hogan gitley. i sho
, they are playing in the super bowl. a piece on senator dianne feinstein's proposed gun bill. on the front page of the press enterprise in inland, california, a growing concern of solar farms where you see solar panels. developers are buying up so much farmland some officials worry too much farmland will disappear. >>> we have heard the second term curse. in the new issue of washington magazine, president obama should learn from president dwight eisenhower. the way to avoid the curse is be like ike. joining me is evan thomas. he wrote "ike's bluff." welcome, so glad you are here. >> hi, alex. >> what is so great about ike? >> he was enormously confident but the confidence to be humble. this is kind of a useful lesson for all of us, but particularly second term presidents. it goes well if you are humble. he learned it growing up and as commander in world war ii. he showed as president, he has a nice modesty and humility to get things done. >> how does that reconcile with a guy who ranks being a five-star general, you have to have an ego to do that. >> sure. he learned how to control it. he used
of wayne lapierre and the national rifle association that makes gun advocates like diane feinstein, to say it will be an uphill battle. >> they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> reporter: but he is on a mission to convince his colleagues. >> we need to wake members up to the fact if they want to do the right thing and join us on gun reform, there is not a political referendum like maybe a decade or two ago. >> reporter: during the 2010 campaign, the nra flooded the area with ads regarding guns, and sherrod brown, and figures for the nonresponsive politics shows that the nra spent over $4 million on the senate campaigns, losing seven out of eight races where they spent over $100,000. money is not the only way to measure influence. >> i think that the nra as a single issue group, is extremely potent as a political force out there. and even though their success rate was less than 50% with their outside spending in the last election, they have these members, millions of members they can mobilize who are strongly motivated on this issue. >> reporter: man
at the feinstein bill? that is what it does. they will turn the universal, i think, check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and they do not want that. that is the last thing they want. >>chris: you take something that is here and you say dill go all the way over there, there is no indication. i can understand you saying that is a threat but nothing the administration says indicate they will have a universal registry. >>guest: and obama was not a tax until they needed it to be a tax. i don't think you can trust these people. feinstein has said, they will go door-to-door and pick them up. can i talk about what would work? >>chris: a couple questions and we will get to it. the murder, today, one of the things that concerns people, each day we talk about a shooting, oftentimes mass shootings, day after day after day, and the frustration is, you don't think that answering or limiting guns has anything to do with it. i understand there are some things you think do work and we will talk about that the murder yesterday of a former navy seal chris kyle, a man
't been a formal -- yes, senator feinstein is passed legislation were offered legislation. it isn't really going to the process. they just had hearings. there are three major proposals and i'll give you a morning line as two where they stand. first is the idea of an assault weapons ban like we had for 10 years starting in 94. diane feinstein proposing that. that we'll have the hardest time passing. there are some indications the white house realizes that we'll have a difficult time. some more likely is a limit on the size of these high-capacity magazines that carey 30 rounds. 100 rounds. and i think there is a better chance that could get through. the thing that has the best chance is a greatly expanded were possibly even universal background check. arguments about the numbers but whether it's 20 or 30 or 40% a large number of gun sales in this country there is no check to see whether the person has a history of mental illness or criminal record. i think that has the best chance in fact the polls showed 90% of americans support that idea. >> speaking of that today during the super bowl may
that allows us when it's brought to the floor to start offering amendments. if dianne feinstein by the time through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh, i don't know. i, frankly -- and she knows i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. i think that we need to take a look at federal trafficking. i think that everyone acknowledges we should do something with background checks. >> universal background checks. >> yeah, we need to increase that. i'm still a supportor of the second amendment but -- >> how about restrictions on high-capacity magazines for am m munition? >> i think we definitely have to look at it. >> look or vote for it? >> let's see what it is. let's see what it is. you know, i know there are restrictions people had forever as to how many bullets you can have in a weapon, for example, if you want to hunt waterfowl you have to plug that to only shoot three times in a
you look at the feinstein bill, he is supporting? that is exactly what it does. i mean, i think what they'll do is turn the universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and law-abiding people don't want that. i mean, my -- >> absolutely do not -- forgive me, sir, you take something that is here, and you say it will go all the way over there. there is no indication, i mean, i can understand you are saying, that is a threat but there is nothing anyone in the administration has said that indicates they are going to have a universal registry. >> and obamacare wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax. >> chris: the supreme court decided that. >> you cannot trust these people. my god, dianne feinstein, said, if i could go door-to-door and pick 'em all up, i would do it. can i tell you what i think will work -- >> i'll ask you a couple of questions, the murder today, one of the things that concerns people, it seems every day we talk about a shooting. oftentimes, mass shooting. >> right. >> chris: day after day after day and the frustration is you d
leahy, i want a bill to come out of the committee. if dianne feinstein by the time it's through the judiciary committee, if she doesn't have her assault weapons, at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> oh,i don't know. frankly, and she knows, i haven't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense. but i'll take a look at it. >> mayor, is senator reid doing enough to move this legislation? >> i believe he should read the amendment and listen to a former mayor, dianne feinstein, who stuck her finger in a bullet hole at a scene of a crime. that's what we see as mayors. in washington assault ban weapon, it's a political issue. here is how it sounds to me. my daughter will be teaching school next year. if somebody is in the horrible situation of shooting in that classroom, and they're forced to reload the gun, that may be my daughter's life, that may be your child's life. force people to reload. my god, if we can't do that, it's horrible enough about what is happening out here. stop
